Young Fresh Fellows vs. The Minus 5: Because We Hate You/Let the War Against Music Begin
Buy! - (Mammoth/Malt)
Two CDs packaged together from these two Seattle bands fronted by Scott McCaughey. Young Fresh Fellows have been around since the mid-'80s, and McCaughey started up his Minus 5 side-project (featuring a revolving supporting cast of musicians) with REM's Peter Buck in the mid-'90s. As for the mock contest implied by the album's billing, it's a toss-up with both discs containing plenty of fine examples of McCaughey's endearingly quirky power pop. 1/15/2001 - Don Yates
